Roughly 1.5 years ago the intake went out. Didn't have the money to replace so the car sat for a year. Once I had the money my mechanic replaced the intake, replaced the plugs and plug wires and changed the oil. It's been running great until recently. About two weeks ago, I started hearing a clicking noise when I would start it first thing in the morning. However, the noise only occurred at idle and after a few minutes it would stop. I initially thought it might be a pipe rattling since it would stop once the RPMs were increased slightly. I checked the oil (no visible leaking and it doesn't appear to be burning any oil). Now it's knocking all the time and it's getting louder to the extent that I feel like if I run the engine anymore it will blow. My guess is that the oil pump is about to go, or already gone. Any thoughts?
have the same problem?
